I would strongly recommend taking the time to meet with the recruiter for your region to ask questions and get more information regarding Peace Corps service, training, and the application process. Your recruiter is a great resource! Meeting with the recruiter for my region was incredibly informative, extinguished any anxieties about the application process and service, and helped me to solidify my intention moving forward that Peace Corps service is where I want to focus my energy and skills at this point in my life.
